Medici Fountain - Review
The Medici Fountain or La fontaine Médicis is a stupendous wellspring situated in the Jardin du Luxembourg in the sixth block in Paris. It was inherent around the range of 1630 by Marie de' Medici, the dowager of King Henry IV of France and official of King Louis XIII of France. It was moved to its available area and widely modified during 1864-66.
Marie de Medicis, the widow of Henry IV and mother and official of King Louis XIII of France, started development of her own royal residence, which she called the Palais des Medicis, between 1623 and 1630, on the left bank of Paris. The new royal residence was designed according to the Palazzo Pitti in her local Florence, and the arrangements around the royal residence were designed according to those of the Boboli Gardens in Florence, and a cavern. The Palace was the work of designer Salomon de Brosse, yet the cave was generally likely the work of Tommaso Francini, the Intendant General of Waters and Fountains of the King.
Francini, who emigrated to France at the welcome of Henry IV in 1598 and was naturalized in 1600, had assembled caves and wellsprings in the Italian style for the marquis de Gondi and for the imperial manor of Henry IV at Saint-Germain-en-Laye.

Medici Fountain, Paris Reviews
Amazing! A lovely, quiet spot. Tranquil. A must see!
The Marie De Medicis Fountain was built in about 1630 by Marie de' Medici and this magnificent fountain is simply the most beautiful and romantic place of Luxembourg Gardens.
I always come back to the Medici fountain every time I am in Paris. Its serenity speaks to the ages
A serene place at the edge of Jardin du Luxembourg with lovely sculpture and a long reflective pool. The fountain is lovely to photograph near sunset. Take a moment also to look at the bas-relief & information on the rear of the fountain wall. Well worth a visit.
Such a relaxing spot in Luxemburg gardens.
